Disney has today confirmed its plans to build a new Star Wars-Inspired themed resort at Walt Disney World.

Part of a new Disney 360 vacation concept, this revolutionary new vacation experience will be a living adventure that allows guests to immerse themselves in an entirely new form of Disney storytelling.

“It’s unlike anything that exists today.” Bob said. “From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire. Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. It is 100% immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits.”

And it’s been confirmed hasn’t it? A female RX droid. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Unidentified_RX-Series_pilot_droid_(Halcyon)

I suppose they could have a screen at the front of the passenger compartment that acts as a 'window' into the front of the craft, showing the driver and his view out the front window.

I'm sorry, it can be hard to tell a joke online. It actually would be cool to have a themed driver.

Or a self driving vehicle. Not a technological stretch for Star Wars.

It was just a joke. :)

From the looks of the illustrations, passengers will not see the driver. It looks like the passenger compartment of the bus is sealed off from the driver.

Florida heat, rain, costumes maybe?

no, not "right next to" and there is no walking - its back stage to GE so that will not be happening. Top is the Galactic Starcruiser, bottom is Galaxy's Edge.

I think they should make everybody walk, just build a themed path. Isn't it right next to Galaxy's Edge? Walking will be faster than waiting for any bus, and should be cheaper.

That's a great idea! I bet people will pay extra for this experience.

People who can't afford the SW hotel can go to Space 220. That's what we are doing. For our family of 4, it's only $80x3+$30, or $300 or so, for a 3hr+ first class space experience, with lots of food provided. Compare that to 3K/night, it's dirt cheap. And we are good after 3 hours. We don't need to be in there all day and night.
